In hAtom, we could just use multiple class names, e.g.:

<div class="hentry hreview">
	<h4 class="summary title">Review of Something</h4>

But when that gets converted into Atom (or read directly by an  
aggregator), it will no longer be recognizable as an hReview, because  
it's not part of the content.  To have it included in the content, it  
would need to be like:

<div class="hentry">
	<h4 class="title">Review of Something</h4>
	<div class="content>
		<h5 class="summary">Review of Something</h4>
So how would we use hAtom to syndicate microformatted data without  
such redundancy?  Or is that a 20% case?
